Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Need a great "Fire on the Mountain" in honor of our great mountain that is burning right now

So you guys did a great job with the early 80's Shakedown request-I'm still having a great time listening to all those shows. Need to interrupt that listening party however since Mt. Diablo, my home & favorite place, is burning out of control. Who has an awesome Fire to play as a dedication to the fire & all the amazing crews working to contain & put it out.

I hope you realize the fire of 1977 was much better...

;)

Seriously, fear not--Mt Diablo was/is "made to burn"; I worked the post-fire surveys of North Peak in 1977-78, and the wildlife/wildflower response was amazing...

Structures, humans, sure; but the landscape will be just fine.

Chaparral.

What is it with folks on this site? It's always the wildfires that they were at that were the best. :)

The fire at Surprise Valley in 92 was the beginning of the end. A bunch of tsunamis crashed the venue after an avalanche took out the fences.

Gate crashers suck.....especially if they are tsunamis.

I refused to go to any wildfires after 69 they didn't have as much energy

Here's a great funky Fire from '85, without Scarlet Begonias. This one seems appropriate since there was a huge wildfire burning in the hills of Ventura behind the band at the time.

it was quite crazy watching the flames leaping up on the hillside with the boys urging them on. I'm pretty sure I took some purple gels at that show...N2O on the beach later...oh man I miss that party!

I lived in Livermore during the 70's, there was one year when we were surrounded by fires. In every direction there was a fire burning on a ridge. Morgan Territory road was our out-there destination, and it burned! A friend had a house out in the hills, fire came w/in a couple hundred yards of their house. The 70's were kind of dry in the bay area.

Thanks for the suggestion. Not a huge fan of '85 but this show is hitting the spot. The sound is fat and full and the band is hitting on all cylinders. Is it just me or does the band often sound like a runaway train in '85?

Dagnabit,Purple--you beat me to it! Yes, as stand alone FIRES go 7/13/85 can't be beat.

So in lieu of that I'll point you to my all-time fave which is almost like a stand-alone since it comes out of Scarlet w/almost no transition jam and starts with a Phil-tastic bass line:

Jerry's intro is insane. A wah-wah wonderland that makes you forget about any transition jam needed.

my personal favorite, love the jams, the super tight intro, the Fire groove and the Garcia fanning flourish

another great early 80s version, this one burns...

Always enjoyed this Scarlet Fire. The transition is great...
